Based on the operator’s many years of experience and thousands of Northern Lights safaris, the latest weather forecast, wind direction and the hosts at the Base Stations, they choose the Base Station or Stations with the best chances of clear sky and, therefore, of experiencing the Northern Lights.
If the weather changes and clouds move in, they check with their network if it would be better to move to another location. And if so, they finish the meal, hot drinks and “lefse” before leaving to look for clear skies somewhere else. In these circumstances, they will stay along the roads searching for a clear sky.
Their focus on this trip is always to show you the Northern Lights!
